Explore the beautiful West Virginia countryside astride Club horses, reserved exclusively for members, or learn to ride by taking a lesson in either Western or English style from one of our expert riding instructors. English riding programs include lessons in huntseat riding, jumping and basic dressage principles, as well as training in natural horsemanship. We also have gymkhanas, which are riding games and lessons for children that improve their balance and riding skill. Both your child and the child in you will also enjoy meeting all of our stable horses plus our miniature burros - they love a good carrot any day, so be sure to visit.
All lessons are tailored to the skill level of individual riders and we can help you improve your technique and enjoyment of this time-honored sport.
The Equestrian Center also provides Sporting Club Members with Happy Dog Day Care service, where your smaller four-legged friends can enjoy supervised playtime, exercise and a sudsy bath to top it all off.

“The new astronomy program has held three events so far and each has been very well attended by members of all ages, from 4 and 5 year olds and up. Definitely the most interesting part is when Dave (Buhrman) hooks up the big telescope to the TV…it’s like watching a National Geographic special.” - Jacob Ott, Director of Outdoor Pursuits – Re: Astronomy Program (1.30.2007)
